Rich  Sheaffer profile picture

Since the events of 2016, Rich Sheaffer has been developing a genre of art he calls Socio-Political Abstractionism. While political art has abounded in the past, it has generally taken the form of such things as cartoons and caricatures. Socio-Political Abstractionism, in contrast, is an art form in which hot-button social topics being divisively debated in the political milieu are “abstractionized” and expressed via painting to inspire thought and discussion. His works are experimental and inspired by current events. Such works are primitive expressions of dreams or visions that express the events and angst of our time in history.
